Switch sales top two million in the U.S.

Nintendo hardware claims two-thirds of September game hardware sales.


Total hardware sales for Switch have topped two million in the United States alone since the system launched on March 3, Nintendo announced.

Switch was the highest selling console in the United States for the third straight month in September. It was also the fifth time overall in the seven months that have passed since launch that it has been the highest selling console.

When combined with the 3DS family of systems and the September 29-launched Super NES Classic Edition, Nintendo hardware sales accounted for two-thirds of September’s total video game hardware sales in the United States.
